Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge #2

Thanks Renegade Expressions, I’m sorry it took so long to get this started as I was quite excited to have inspiration for a post. I’m really lagging behind with this.

Rules of the challenge:

  • Three quotes for three days.
  • Three nominees each day (no repetition).
  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Inform the nominees

My second quote for this challenge is:

‘You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way and the only way, it does not exist’ – Friedrich Nietzsche

Everybody’s a critic. I think that’s another quote too. But yeah. I mean, do I really need to expound? We see it everyday, people doing their thing, trying to make a point, achieve something, do what they feel needs to be done, and the people behind them going, no, no, no, not like that; do it this way instead’. Because every one of us has done this to someone. Looked at a person doing something and thought or said, ‘nope, they’re doing it wrong’. This is so clearly seen in the opposition to the #BlackLivesMatter movement and in the responses to Colin Kaepernick’s method of taking a stand against oppression by taking a knee during the U.S. national anthem.

We criticize the way people celebrate, grieve, fix things, start things, end things, do things, too often feeling that we have somehow perfected the method of achieving a goal no matter how simplistic, just because we did it once and survived. Can we stop though? Can we look at another person’s method, observe objectively and instead think or say ‘cool, they got that done and now I know a new way to do it’. The way may not work for you, because it’s not your way, it doesn’t suit your needs, it cannot be incorporated into your reality, but that doesn’t make it wrong.

So do things your way, let me do things my way and see if we can learn something new from each other…

Today I nominate:

Jaipur Thru My Lens

A Walk in the Snow

518 – Song of My People
